Absolutely loved this place! My husband and I came here on our honeymoon, hoping for an adventure we would never forget and found that here. Staff, volunteers, and other guests were helpful, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the wildlife, and prepared to go on a hike! Would love to come back to visit again sometime. Here are some photos from... More

I fell in love with this place right when we arrive on the boat.The staff members were extremely nice and very welcoming. The cooking was great. The building itself was very cozy. The showers were very clean and refreshing after a long hot day. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. After the second day there I felt... More

We arrived at Campanario the day after Christmas after flying into San Jose, taking a car to Sierpe, and spending the night there. Up to this point, we had already had quite an adventure, so we weren't sure what to expect. Campanario is truly a treasure. You need to go with expectation of doing LOTS of hiking - even to... More

I was there with my Biology class and it was a trip that I will never ever forget. If you're ready for a nature adventure, this is the right trip for you! The food is amazing, the housing perfect for the setting, the hammocks overlooking the ocean a dream and I've learned so much from all the staff there. I... More

I can't wait to return, with my family and another high school group. Rustic and perfect are the two words that come to mind. I love the lack of electricity and outdoor showers and sharing the rainforest hikes with monkeys and toucans and crabs and snakes. From the beach landing to the cottages for sleeping to the food to the... More

Stayed here four days with a high school group in April, 2014 - I will be returning with my family, hopefully this summer. Nancy embodies the spirit of the place with her energy and enthusiasm for every aspect of ecology, the rainforest, the ocean and the intertidal zone. The accommodations are rustic but clean and comfortable and the views from... More

I stayed here with seven fellow students about two weeks ago. It was pure Heaven. Helping out and getting to know the people and surrounding rain forest was unforgettable. I hope to return someday to this truly magical place. I had the best time of my life here.

If you want an authentic Costa Rican experience there is no better spot to stay. Campanario is a true gem and one of the most amazing places I've been. Nancy, the owner is a wealth of knowledge. The location is remote and beautiful. When you go, stay as long as you can. You will never want to leave.
